Last days | “Litomorfose”, solo show by Cristiano Lenhardt

(São Paulo, Brazil) “Litomorfose” [“Lithomorphosis”] is a series of three photographs in which the artist appears wearing clothes sculpted from paper. Photocopied based on cross-sections of stones from a book on archaeology, these papers also cover the photograph’s background, thus producing a double effect of camouflaging the clothes and revealing digitally distorted parts of the body. As well as this series, Lenhardt presents sculptures and an installation.
